  3. On the Structure Board, click Search, then click JQL and type assignee=currentUser() order by updated. You can use any other query - see more about Searching and Filtering.
  4. When some issues are found by the search, click "More Issues in JIRA" button if it's not switched on, and then drag-and-drop several found issues into the Structure.
  5. When you have several issues added to the structure, try to rearrange them to create a hierarchy.
